I give lessons to anyone who wants to find the music in themselves. The ukulele is a perfect instrument for exploring new musical frontiers, and I can help students learn to sing and play at the same time.
I have my degree in Elementary Education with a minor in music. I build lessons around student's goals in what they would like to accomplish as well as their learning style and abilities. I do my best to set them up to succeed.
In 2012, Rachel auditioned for Season 12 of American Idol and became a featured contestant and top 20 female competing on the show. Billboard ranked her performance of Grace Potter’s “Nothing But the Water” as one of the Top Performances of the entire season. And the judges named her the “happiest contestant,” because of her unshakable smile.
I teach piano and guitar in San Francisco (Sunset District) and online. I teach all ages from beginner to intermediate level. Teaching music is one of my passions in life and I wholeheartedly believe that music can change lives for the better.
my name is john dussault im a young 66 and have given drum lessons for quite a while. my music education began around age 13, i took drum lessons at local music store for at least 3 years and studied theory and keyboards and played in rock bands as well as orchestras.
Hello! I am a voice graduate from Berklee College of Music. I have been a teacher for 4 years and am a enthusiastic and patient teacher. I have experience teaching students from the ages of 3 to 55.
I have played guitar for about ten years now. I have given lessons to a good ammount of friends. And family. I start from what the student knows and slowly work my way towards scales and chords while maintaining a Pace that the student feels comfortable with. I am very laid back and don't push the student too hard where they wouldn't want to come back, but instead, hard enough for them to enjoy it.
My teaching method is highly personalized, but always focuses on building a strong musical foundation in rhythm, melody and harmony, as well as becoming aware of the many dynamic and expressive qualities available to us.
My goal as a teacher is to assess each student as a whole. A person's personality, temperament and energy levels and more will most assuredly play into their ability and willingness to learn. My goals as a teacher are to assess each student in my care as a holistic being.
My teaching technique draws largely from the work of Jerzy Grotowski, where we focus on freeing muscles of the body and breathing exercises before we play or sing. I believe that if we can free the body we can then, and only then reach the maximum potential as a player or singer.
I make an effort to gear my method of teaching to the students I have in classes, mostly utilizing visual and aural skills.
Repetition, challenges, fun, and association, i.e. acronyms to remember for example the names of notes on both treble and bass clefs, names of the strings on the guitar while played open, etc. Each lesson is specific for the students needs and abilities.
I teach in a relaxed and approachable manner.
I have come up with my own way of teaching. You will love it for sure. I have used many books and ideas from different guitarists and some of the ways I teach, I get ideas from those books and build them up my way.
I understand that music is an intimidating subject, and I want every student to know that they have the ability to become professional musicians if they so choose. Because of my background in voice, piano, and music theory, our teaching plan will depend on your interests, goals, and learning-style.
I am a positive, encouraging, yet diligent tutor; I am very good at understanding the student's perspective while guiding them in the directions they need in order to develop as a musician. I give lessons in piano, guitar (acoustic and electric), or theory to teens and adults.
Using examples either from videos or from myself, I like to practically show students what needs to be done to improve. I push them forward always to never limit themselves but always shoot for the stars. I encourage several practices on the piano or vocally until it becomes second nature, which helps to ensure mastery of the skill.
Music is a subject like no other. I like to show people how to get comfortable with the foundations of music and theory, so it becomes second nature and open to experimenting and developing each piece with emotion and precision.
I approach each student differently and taylor classes to individual needs. I am confident that any student can learn through my years of experience. It takes a special skill to reach out for guidance on a new skill. I respect every students journey.
I teach every student according to their own musical interests and goals. With beginners I start with the basics of guitar and music theory and quickly move into practical coaching and instruction that gets real time results. I work with advanced students to help them maximize their musical abilities in whatever musical outlet they are working and creating in.
My teaching method is very simple. I like to hear what they bring to the table.
I teach each individual student uniquely based on his/her needs and goals. I emphasize a strong theory base to help students grow as musicians. I help each student become his/her best musician and provide support for each student along his/her educational journey. Positivity and hard work are the basis of my teaching method.
I've been teaching private lessons for over ten years to all ages and skill levels. As an instructor, I am passionate about practice techniques and music theory, though not at all overbearing. Whether you’re just beginning or feeling over-practiced and in a rut, I think lessons should always be both engaging and fun.
My approach to tutoring focuses on praising achievements, being efficient in time management to get the most work done, and leaving the student feeling confident that whatever we haven't done together they will be able to accomplish effectively on their own! The more self-sufficient they feel, the more I've done my job and we can move on to more advanced work.
With beginners I work with most of the main stream method books: Faber & Faber, A Dozen Day, Flash Cards; I complement the repertoire with traditional piano repertoire adjusted to the level of the student. I work with complementary material and exercises and adapt them to the cognitive level of the student. I also have a lot of experience teaching high level performers.
My teaching methodology is based on the individual's mind set. I believe that anyone can do anything if they set their mind to it with great discipline. With great words of encouragement, and patience, I work with students to find a common ground between myself and their classmates.
I would like to teach beginner-intermediate piano. I would like to help kids learn how to read music and successfully play pieces on the piano. I truly enjoy working with kids and piano was so meaningful to me through out my life and I would love to share my passion with others! I like to use both visual aids and hands- on methods to help kids truly understand music and the instrument.
My method is to assess, fill in gaps, and build on what they already know. I cater my teaching style to different learning styles, as not every child has the same sensibilities in music. I see what works for each kid, and alter it until it works.
my teaching method is very personal, but it also works great in group settings. i use songs, and rhythms to teach the fundamentals. i have lots of fun little turns and spins in my teaching, all while adhering to pedigogy.
I think music is well appreciated and well learned when it is taught with passion. I believe that a student needs to enjoy what they are learning, if they are to truly excel in that filed. As a result, I always strive to find areas of music that students and passionate about, and then pursue those ideas, rather than following one strict form of pedagogy.
